Painless NVidia Boot Camp Update on MacBook Pro

NVidia has recently WHQL certified “verde” notebook drivers: 258.96. In the past, drivers from NVidia have refused to install without hacking the INF or waiting for a boot camp update, which happens about once a year.

This time, though the drivers installed happily with no complaint. Woot!

I also grabbed the latest NForce drivers which contain Ethernet, SMBus and Away Mode drivers for my 2009 MacBook Pro Unibody. The SMBus and Away Mode drivers are related to power management. Who knows, maybe they will improve my battery life.
